The data center and multi-cloud solutions subsidiary of the PLDT Group strengthened its footprint as the country’s dominant data center with the completion of several capacity expansion projects of its premiere VITRO data centers in Makati and Parañaque.
“Our 10 Vitro data centers have roughly 65 percent power share in terms of data center colocation space in the country, according to the latest Structure Research’s Data Center Industry Report. We continue to expand and transform our existing facilities to ensure these are always at par with hyperscalers’ global standards. Simultaneously, we are progressing with the construction of ePLDT’s 11th state-of-the-art data center in Sta. Rosa, Laguna,” said Victor Genuino, ePLDT president and chief executive.
The transformation includes the expansion of VITRO Makati 2 and Parañaque which will add 1,820 new racks ready for service as early as March this year and an incremental 14 megawatts to the total power capacity of VITRO.
“We’ve expanded the fourth and fifth floors of our VITRO Makati 2 and currently increasing capacity for VITRO Parañaque. These expansions will allow us to deliver on the urgent requirements of our current roster of customers, while providing additional capacity to new customers this year as we prepare for the launch of VITRO Sta. Rosa in the first quarter of 2024,” he said.
